I believe that this is when the Eddie wheel starts turning in her crazy head: Oh, I'll go fucking see this movie, you betcha. And who better with than the man I've always used to keep you guys in suspense, without you knowing it. And thus I shall have my revenge. On my children.
As well as on Kevin for the Ginny thing, of course, but it's still very addict of her. Grace mumbles darkly, "You shouldn't be sleeping on the couch," before shambling away; Fiona shoves a handful of cereal in her mommy's mouth.
Lunch, at that airy, classy place they go. Jackie wonders aloud why not one stabbing or GSW is ever "the unsinkable Ginny Flynn," and Eleanor offers to let her bleed to death when that happens. "My two cents? No sleeping on couches. It makes people -- i.e. husbands -- ask questions like 'Is something wrong?' 'Can we talk?' Et cetera. No good comes of it, believe me." Plus the back issues the couch engenders, which has rendered her useless. Eleanor breezily/sweetly says she's many things but not useless, and offers her a half-a-Percocet.
Up on the bar's TV screen, sexy reporter Sarah Kohri is reporting on Gaza. Jackie gazes up at her admiringly, and Eleanor thinks for a second before dipping her toe into that one: "She's leaving Gaza to take a desk in Washington," she says, not looking up from the paper, and then admits that she knows Sarah. "Swanky life," Jackie laughs, and Eleanor nods. One more Percocet offer -- "too hard on the liver!" Jackie gasps, and Eleanor points out it's only true if you take it in "obscene" quantities. Girl, they don't have an MPAA rating for how obscene Jackie can get with a bottle of Percocet. Jackie's eyes are drawn back to Sarah: "God, I could not love her more!" Eleanor sucks her teeth and shakes out her paper and says sarcastically, "Yeah? Well. Get in line."
OMG O'Hara totally does have a girlfriend! Man, she gets all the hot ass. Speak of the devil, Sam tries to grab her coming into the hospital, but she brushes him off. "Quick and painless," she says, and Jackie points out that it's already not painless. "Well, then here's to quick." They don't look back.
